Bluegill - Big Bluegill

Do you love big bluegill?

Got on the water with a co-worker yesterday morning in search of nothing in particular. I caught the nicest bluegill I've caught in that lake on a point in some shade. I almost thought I was snagged until I seen her. Beautiful. Also caught some redear. Yellow perch came out to play along with some largemouth bass. But the most fun had to be when I went on the hunt for the chain pickerel. I hooked 2 within 15 minutes and both of them shot out of the water mid-battle and threw my hook. This angered me because I haven't caught one in a while. I'll be back for them and they know it! Those pickerel hit live minnows and the rest of the fish were hitting nightcrawlers. Busy day on the lake as well, lots of boats out welcoming spring. We talked to several guys that were expecting crappie but wasn't having a lot of luck with them. We didn't see any, but we weren't specifically fishing for them either. Sometimes that matters and sometimes it doesn't. Thanks for reading and good fishing to you fellas.

Keep those reports coming along. Written detailed reports will provide us the insights to your waters, but also reveal a new dimension of fishing knowledge that you tend to gain from sharing. Anglers are both students and teachers at the same time. 80% of the time, we're students, 10% being a teacher, 10% being our own/other's victims.

Sounds like a good day on the water.
